"The Stars Look Down" as written by and Gary Lee Weinrib Alex Zivojinovich....
Like the fly on the wheel who says
'What a lot of dust we're raising'
Are you under the illusion
That you're part of this scheme?
Doesn't seem a lifetime ago
That you look with pride
On your world of dreams

What is the meaning of this?
And the stars look down
What are you trying to do?
And the stars look down
Was it something I said
And the stars look down

Like the rat in a maze who says
'Watch me choose my own direction'
Are you under the illusion
The path is winding your way?
Are you surprised by confusion
When it leads you astray?
Have you lived a lifetime today...
Or do you feel like you just got carried away?
What is the meaning of this?
And the stars look down
What are you trying to do?
And the stars look down
Was it something I said?
And the stars look down
Something you'd like me to do?
And the stars look down

What is the meaning of this?
And the stars look down
What are you trying to do?
And the stars look down
Was it something I said
And the stars look down

Something you'd like me to do
And the stars look down

    General CommentI've read various stories about this song. One said that this was inspired by a sci-fi graphic novel and the other about questioning faith due to tragic events. Either case I really enjoy it.

    General Commenti think it is a question of faith because of what Neil had to go through. in the chorus he is tryin to figure out if what happened was supposed to mean something or if it was just bad luck. and the verses he's questioning whether or not he still wants to live his life and chase after his old dreams.

    General CommentYou're both basically right about the faith thing. To quote Peart from the Vapor Trails tourbook:
    "This seemed to express a fitting view of an uncaring universe."
